Combine the mantra of Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Costa Rica, “Vacation like a star,” with the state of being this traveler-friendly nation exudes, pura vida, and you have a unique combination. From a wake-up call of birds and howler monkeys to the pulsating rhythms of nightly entertainment—there is a multitude of activities to partake in.
“Our resort is a favorite among travel advisors as they know that from the moment their clients arrive, to when they depart, they will be treated with exceptional service and first-class hospitality. If they are in the mood for Tex-Mex, we have it. A sushi and Teppanyaki bar, we have that too. Parties, entertainment, yoga, a silent disco, we have it all,” says Janek Rattinger, corporate director of groups and wedding sales. “Costa Rica was Planet Hollywood’s first foray into the luxury all-inclusive resort market and by the reaction of our guests, we are doing it right.”
Planet Hollywood Beach Resort is the first themed all-inclusive resort in the country, and one of only a few resorts set on the Pacific coast of Papagoya Peninsula in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica. Built into a hillside and overlooking a pristine beach, the resort’s mantra is to “Vacation Like a Star.”
Authentic Hollywood memorabilia and themed experiences are featured at this 294-luxury suite resort set in 17 villas that include handcrafted custom mattresses, a PH Spa & Beauty Bar, Pumped fitness center, Stars Kids Club, and poolside cabanas.
There are six a la carte restaurants and an international buffet that includes So Cal Gourmet Food Emporium, East Sushi & Teppanyaki Bar, Sunset Strip Steakhouse & Grill, Blue Star Tex-Mex Cantina, Gusto Italian Trattoria, Overtime Bar & Grill, and Guy Fieri’s Burger Joint.
The resort’s Star Class elevates one’s experience even more with a personal agent who will handle every request. Star Class also includes complimentary access to the hydrotherapy pool set in the resort’s impressive spa.
Adventure Beyond the Resort
A popular excursion from Planet Hollywood Beach Resort, with the help of its onsite tour company, Nexus Tours, is the Diamante Eco Adventure Park that enthralls guests with a zipline course, an animal sanctuary, and a botanical garden with a recreation of a typical 100-year-old farmhouse that offers hands-on experiences featuring the country’s most valuable resources: coffee, chocolate, and sugar cane.
This oceanfront adventure park is also home to Hammock Beach for paddleboarding, snorkeling, kayaking, splashing in the waves, or relaxing in hanging chairs and hammocks.
Experience the Pura Vida Spirit
With an extensive offering of activities each day, some choose not to leave Planet Hollywood Beach Resort and as I watched throngs of vacationers frolic in the foam being shot into the pool Saturday afternoon, I could understand why.
That’s what makes this resort so unique—adventure, partying, relaxing, socializing, dining, and shopping, are all options. Combine that with the spirit of pura vida, and you have a getaway that will not be forgotten.
